Year 1 – Seven sets of editable oral reading skills per week for 7 weeks – based on a couple of sentences or a single paragraph. (Powerpoint). Each reading domain is used to revise the skills from one week to the next. Skills (one for each slide) include: visualisation, vocabulary, prediction, clarification, inference, retrieval and sequencing.
We have ordered the reading domains based on which skills I feel would be the most appropriate, but they can easily be manouvered around. A focus domain could be used from one text to another, all depending on the need of your cohort. These should lead your cohort nicely to the next academic year from Summer B to Autumn A of the next set.
We use these as warm ups to enhance our reading lessons, or at any time we have a free moment to keep those skills sharp!
